3 suspected militants killed in city


PV Desk : Three suspected militants were killed during an operation conducted by the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) at city’s west Nakhalpara area during early hours today.

Two RAB members were also injured during the drive.

“The drive started after midnight at around 2 am on Friday and the drive is still going on,” said Deputy Director of RAB headquarter Major Mehedi.

Acting on tip-off, he said the RAB-3 members cordoned the militant hideout located at 13/1’Rubi Vila’,a six-storey building just behind the Prime Minister’s office. The militants opened fire on the RAB after sensing their presence.

The RAB members stormed the gate of the building and evacuated some 65 inhabitants of the building. The elite forces have arrested a few persons from the spot for further query.

The RAB members retaliated on them and recovered three bodies from the fifth floor of the house, he added.
